Yesterday marked the end of my Brett Jackson bandwagon phase. Its entirely possible he pans out but I don't see star anymore with the way he strikes out. He has made no improvement this year in that regard in fact getting worse while his walk rate declines. On the positive side Brooks Raley struck out 7 in 7 and Rizzo stayed healthy.
Alcantara went 2-4 and Matt Szcrurururu has yet to return from the DL. Noted jay walker PJ Francescon struck out 5 batters in 6 innings of work while allowing a pair of runs only one of which was earned.
Shawon Dunston went 2-4 and Jeimer Candelario continues to be the most impressive hitter so far in low A hitting a 2 run shot and raising his average to .292. Candelario showed a great eye last year in the DSL walking more than he struck out and AZ Phil reported he has some pop in his bat so he will be a guy to watch.
Vogelbach didn't even start the rookie league game. Fuck the heck man. 2011 UFDA David Henrie struck out 5 in 3 scoreless innings though so there's that.
